The preschoolers practiced their cutting skills, trying to make each piece about the same size cutting them from strips of construction paper. The toddlers worked on color names. We all counted the strips of each color. And they had fun role-playing with real kitchen tools and brightly colored "stew ingredients"!
After a couple minutes of cooking and stirring, my daycare boy took some down to the floor to dish up into bowls
He patted it down "Because Rainbow Stew is flat"
Of course Little Man loved the activity too!
Rainbow Stew is bound to spill on the floor, but no worries, they just picked it up and put it back in the pot.
And then served it to me.
They may need some food safety training before they ever work at a restaurant.
